  • Phil Ereaut has written v3.0 of his Emulator Disk Reader & Copy utility. It is a Windows program which allows you to view the sectors of a DSK and DMK image, and, apparently, new to v3.0 is an import/export. It can also show you the PDRIVE settings used on a NewDos/80 DSK/DMK. Download it here or on the Emulator page.

Andre’ LaMothe, an author, game programmer, and series editor for Premier Publishing “Game Development Series”. He is interested in doing a book on “Retro Game Programming” to cover: Atari 800, Apple, Commodore, and TRS-80 programming. He anticipates that the book will be written by 4 authors, each having their own section, and on the CD will be emulators or links to them.

He is looking for people to help write the book. If you are interested – send him an email.

May 11, 2002

  • Phil Ereaut has scanned in the first 40 NewDos/80 v2 patches. He did not get a chance to check them and a number of them are damaged. If anyone has a paper copy, and can check the text (especially the hex codes), it would be appreciated. I have tried to change all bad values into “??”, but many things could not be so easily cured. It DESPERATELY needs a proofread by someone with a hard copy. They can be found on the NewDos80 Zaps Page.
  • Tim Mann has released XTRS v4.9 .

May 13, 2002

The search pages have been updated as of today.

Tim Mann has released v2.7 of the CW2DMK Utility. According to Tim (cut and paste alert) Version 2.7a of my Catweasel Floppy Read/Write Tools is now available at http://www.tim-mann.org/trs80resources.html. This release adds a program (jv2dmk) to convert JV1 and JV3 floppy disk images (the formats used by Jeff Vavasour’s and Matthew Reed’s emulators) to DMK format. This is mostly useful as an intermediate step if you want to write one of those floppy images to a real disk with the Catweasel hardware, but you can also use it just to convert between the different emulator formats, even if you don’t have a Catweasel.

  • I have won an ebay auction (my 3rd – I’m not a fan of the service) for some 80-Micros. I am going to try to scan them.
  • I have modified the program I wrote to generate my download pages – including a case insensitive sort – which should, for example, lump all of NewDos/80, NEWDOS/80, and Newdos/80 together now.

August 29, 2002

  • John Mineur graciously donated some Model 4D pictures to complete the TRS-80 picture line. Thank you very much John.

September 16, 2002

  • For those of you not following comp.sys.tandy, I am scanning an 80 Micro. How it would get distributed is beyond me. If you have 330MB to spare on an FTP site, please let me know.

September 18, 2002

  • Nick Andrew has offered up space for the 80-Micro. Stay tuned.
  • I would be negligent in not mentioning that Alasdair Crawford, the individual who is currently hosting my files (yup folks, only one “mirror”), offered as well, but I turned him down because he gets charged for excess transfers.

September 20, 2002

  • Grendel of TOSEC had suggested, as had a number of other people on comp.sys.tandy, that I check into DejaVu instead of Adobe Acrobat PDF format for the 80 Micros. Since I retained my TIF files, I figured I would give it a shot. The 358 Pages scanned in at 225MB in TIFs. Those TIFs, when imported into Adobe Acrobat produced a file which is 165MB long. The same exact TIFs, when imported into DejaVu, produced a file 17MB in size. Yikes.
  • I have posted the 80 Micro in DejaVu format. Please download it quickly – i am not going to be able to leave it up long. It is Zipped at 16MB. It can be found here

September 25, 2002

  • John Mineur has donated High Resolution Graphics Demonstration Disk (DMK) – Author Unknown (19xx) and High Resolution Graphics Setxy and Print (DMK) – Author Unknown (19xx)

October 2, 2002

  • The 9/83 80 Micro is fully scanned. The RAR’s have been posted – The DejaVu is compressing overnight, and should be up in the PM of 10/3.

October 23, 2002

  • A few more 80 Micro covers have been uploaded to the 80-Micro page. I am about 1/2 way thru scanning the current one, but have decided that I cannot scan water damaged 80-Micro’s anymore – the cleanup is only partially effective, and it takes twice the time..

October 24, 2002

  • Neil Morrison has provided a listing of Cassette Recorder Levels. They can be found on the Patches – internals page.

October 26, 2002

  • I have submitted new CLRMame and RomCenter DATs to TOSEC for the Model 1, 3, and 4.
  • Lamar Owen is sending some new disks – including his personal hacked copy of TRSDOS v1.3, which he calls v1.4.

October 29, 2002

  • The scanning of the next 80 Micro has concluded. Tomorrow I will assemble the PDF, RAR it, and create the DejaVu. With any luck, I can post it tomorrow as well.

October 30, 2002

  • 80 Microcomputing (7-81) stats are: 310 Pages, PDF = 120MB, TIFFs = 137MB, DejaVu = 14MB, with the PDF broken into 25 RARs at 5MB each.
  • The issue is now up (and does have the famous Interlude full page color ad). Actually, it’s half up. My German mirror loads to a staging area and he needs to move it, so they are uploaded but unavailable for download. The UK mirror accepted my connection and the files are being uploaded now. For those who MUST have it now, you may have to click on each link a couple of times to get it to choose a mirror which has the file ready to go – hopefully by tomorrow all mirrors will have the files.

October 31, 2002

  • Another 30 80-Micro covers have been scanned. Surprisingly, I am only shy 38 covers at the moment. I guess its time to pick my next 80 Micro scanning victim.

November 1, 2002

All of the covers which I possess are now up. This means that I am missing the following 80 Micros (water damaged or otherwise):

November 6, 2002

  • The 80 Micro pages now have links to the existing Load-80’s I have.
  • The 80 Micro covers have been changed from 100 Pixels to 150 Pixels, so they are slightly more legible.
  • The next 80 Micro to be scanned will be September 1981 – it too is water damaged – but I do not really have the inventory to go with a good copy. I am 50 pages into the 360 page issue.
  • You are checking the for/sale page, right? Its been getting a bit of a work out lately.

November 15, 2002

  • The next 80 Micro has been scanned – this time 9/81. The RARs have been uploaded to my mirrors but, as is always the case, the German mirror must move the files before they are web accessible. If you click on a RAR link and get a file not found, try again. When the random number generator hits the UK mirror, you can get the file. Once the German mirror moves the stuff, this will not be necessary.
  • The stats are: 356 Pages – TIFFs = 173MB; PDF = 152MB; 32 RARs @ 5MB each (total 149MB). The DejaVu is giving me a lot of trouble (crashing) so there may not be a DejaVu. I suspect at least ONE of the 356 TIFFs is trouble for it (but not Acrobat) and that’s what’s doing the crashing.
  • Update: DejaVu is being VERY picky on these TIFFs. I have had to redo 95, 125, 131, 132, 133, 142, 143, 146, 147, 149, 150, 151, 154, 157, 189, 190, 191, 199, 200, 202, 203, 204, 206, 209, 212, 218, 219, 220, 225, 226, 229, 232, 236, 241 and 242 so far. 244, 246 and 247 are also “bad” (which is where I stopped checking). I am not going to pursue this any more. Sorry – there will be no DejaVu of this issue.

November 19, 2002

  • I am continuing to see if I can do a DejaVu. So far I have rescanned, 244, 246, 247, 249, 250, 251, 256, 261, 262, 264, 265, 268, 270, 271, 272, 279, 280, 282, 283, 285, 288, 291, 292, 296, 300, 303, 305, 306, 307, 308, 309, 310, 313, 315, 316, 317, 318, 320, 326, 329, 331, 332, 333, 334, 335, 336, 338, 340, 344, 345, 346, 350, 351, and 354. This is ridiculous.
  • Update: OK, so I did all those, and went to import, and got more errors. I will make a second pass to see what’s what.
  • Update: It seems 257 was also bad. The DejaVu is now building.
  • I will probably rebuild the PDF. These new scans are smaller than the old ones, which means the PDF may lose around 3MB in size if I redo it. It seems from Adobe’s web site, that they are darn well aware that TIFF’s have to be inserted individually (but you can buy an add on). Yuck.
  • New Stats: 356 Pages – TIFFs = 166MB; PDF = 146MB; 31 RARs @ 5MB each (total 144MB); DejaVu = 16MB

November 20, 2002

  • I have redone the navigation bar on the left due to many requests of people running 800 x 600 or worse. All computers which I barely support on the site (Model 2-16, Notebook, Pocket, Coco) have been moved under a submenu.
  • Shawn Sijnstra and Walter Smith have each donated a bit of software. Shawn provided 4MB of DMK images, and Walter has mailed over about 15 disks. I will sort them ASAP.

November 25, 2002

  • The Shawn Sijnstra and Walter Smith files have been mostly sorted and posted (there are 6 still unsorted). The Model I page has been updated to reflect the new DOS’s which had been contributed.
